The Secret Teachings 10/20/22 - Mischief Night in the Zeitgeist w. Derek Murphy
The Secret Teachings
Zombies, vampires, werwolves, monsters, and demons are both real and unreal. They are astral corpses, shells, and vessels as much as they are expressions of human consciousness. If the pen is mightier than the sword, then ink is more powerful than spilled blood. Ink of the squid or octopus with its many tentacles writes our news and entertainment to steer our perception with information, which in turn controls our thought and behavior. We become dolls or artificial wombs in a process of an ectogenesis of the mind for ideas to manifest from outside our internal temples. Real dolls and robots also replace the human being as we pump energy and information into both the black mirror of the Internet and literal machines, particular in a sexual manner, by which the machine is the alchemical vessel for the creation of artificial consciousness through the wasted organic ’spark of life’. In other words, humans become more doll-like and the dolls become more human. Humans then become obsolete with the ‘natural’ world around them as it is replaced. The VAMPIRE sucks our energy, or life force, by blood and currency, which may also mean money. The WEREWOLF is the turning of the human into a digressed animalistic state, though this creature may also be an outside entity attempting to manifest as ‘man’s best friend' to make us feel safe, or it may be an abomination of dark sorcery or thought-form. The CANNIBAL eats its own but this consumption can also be energetic like a vampire, or social in the form of abusing and aggressing against those with different points of view. The ‘man-eater’ in the Egyptian Hall of Judgement consumes those with a heavy heart, including all of us consumed by carnal destructions with a pathway distant from conscious evolution, and inverted towards the depths of hell. Derek Murphy, synchromystic, joins us for the discussion.

The Secret Teachings 8/30/22 - All Dolled Up w. Derek Murphy
The Secret Teachings
The 2022 #VMA awards were a stereotypical expression of elitist idol worship. Viewers were sold solutions during commercial break to problems created by the perverse entertainment industry: pregnancy tests, anti-HIV drugs, and anti-depressants. During the ceremony they were sold false idols. Performers are no longer just ‘fake’, but many look with makeup and surgery as if they have been turned into soulless dolls able to move only at their handler’s will. Just as the miserably famous have been used as marionettes, the final product is beginning to slip into the general public making them inanimate dolls unable to speak or move without artificial influence. The divine soul is being replaced with something diabolic.
The Secret Teachings 6/17/22 - Beauty is in the AI of the Beholder w. Derek Murphy
The Secret Teachings
There is an intriguing correlation between technology, machines, and artificial intelligence, and the tentacles, oceanic abyss, and black goo of popular culture, etc. Now that octopuses are considered sentient in countries around the world and found in some capacity in virtually all forms of entertainment, it seems that their black ink and tentacles (also of the squid) likely symbolize interconnected computer networks and possessive forces working through the black mirror screens of our devices. In 2021, Elon Musk suggested that a brain parasite is possibly forcing Man to create artificial intelligence. Now the two are working together, as a human being for the first time teamed up with an artificial intelligence image generator to create a comic book series called the ‘Abolition of Man’, set to be released in 2022. The name of the comic is also that of a C.S. Lewis story about man’s power over nature and the value of objectivity and natural law, wherein he argues that emotion should conform to reason in science. Carson Grubaugh, who co-created the AI comic, went on to say that we need this technology because all man can seem to do is substitute rich creative gold of the past with “recycled lead of the present.” However, it only seems this way because our entertainment is filled with the same imagery everywhere we look, especially darker imagery of the unconquered sub-conscious. Humans are either being forced, influenced, or choosing, not to express their creativity and instead of making Faustian deals with cosmic forces for cheap rewards. A UK astronomer, Lord Martin Rees, also suggested in 2022 -robots have already replaced aliens from other worlds and are looking to target humans next. This is an idea that seems far advanced already with mankind being promised "all the kingdoms of the world" by technology on the "very high mountain" of madness; that we could have everlasting life physically, be directly connected with each other, and obtain vast creative powers through deepfake, deep voice, text to image AI, etc. However, such promises are a distortion, desecration, and destruction of nature - an abolition of man - since mankind already possesses spiritual immortality, emotional connections with other humans, and nature, and immense creative powers.
The Secret Teachings 5/12/22 - Dreamwalking in the Mouth of the Multiverse w. Derek Murphy
The Secret Teachings
For years popular culture has been shifting our collective energy into superheroes and other dimensions. Movies have always taken us to other worlds, be that the very adult Pan’s Labyrinth or the child-themed Caroline, or they have brought other worlds and their inhabitants to us through portals in Pacific Rim and from in Independence Day. This is all entertainment, fantasy, and metaphor but today’s popular culture seems to be obsessed with different sigils they wish to charge with our attention in order to carry out complex rituals. Sometimes it even seems some symbolic directive has been issued and the following movies of different genres start mimicking each other. 'Dr Strange' and 'Everything Everywhere All at Once' are so closely related that it feels like one was an extension of the other. Both are centered around the concept of multiple realities existing in parallel dimensions that are endless in possibility. Everything is only an arrangement of particles and every tiny decision branches off into a new universe with parallel possibilities. It’s all just part of the infinite Multiverse and dreams are windows into our multidimensional selves. They include the red lady, mirrors, jumping realities, possession, child sacrifice, black goo, third eyes, and overt black magic.
The Secret Teachings 3/15/22 - Black Atem: Direct Currency w. Derek Murphy
The Secret Teachings
DC comics is Directing Currency and Chaos through major motion pictures that focus viewer attention on electrical currents and multiverses. These same concepts, sigils, and symbols can be seen in sports, geopolitics, and other forms of entertainment. The idea that we can become superheroes through new technologies accompanies the idea that technocrats can therefore become gods. When you realize that digItal assimilation creates subhuman qualities, however, it becomes clear that the new gods are attempting to create armageddon to build their own version of a new heaven and earth after end times. This new world will then be subject to the laws of man, rather than God, and those uploaded into the multi-meta-verse become new synthetic/digital men, or the Black ATEM (META/ADAM).
The Secret Teachings 1/5/22 - Saturn Returns: Rise of the Titans w. Derek Murphy
The Secret Teachings
The year of the tiger can also be marked as the year of 'Saturn Returns'. Although Saturn is commonly associated with Capricorn, the goat, providing us with the horns of the devil and the black companion of Satan, as well as the Black Sun. He sometimes is depicted riding a donkey, which astrologically is Sagittarius, therefore linking Saturn to the two-faced gods like Janus who is most famous for the month of January. Since Saturn has been identified as Cronus, we know that he is the god of time as well as agriculture. The changing of the seasons was very important to earlier Man and relates directly to the turning of the yearly wheel. But there are larger cycles inside of even larger cycles. Saturn was supported in his authority by the Titans, who were said to hold up the earth from within after being imprisoned by Jupiter. The Titans are also said to exist in natural disasters that cleanse the earth. Throughout popular culture and history, both contemporary and esoteric, men have worked to encourage the return of Saturn and these Titans to purify the earth. We know that Omicron can be translated to the 'little o' (omi) or 'beginning' in relation to 'time' (cron or cronus). Now, Ihu brings us the meaning of 'god rescues' and is defined as a 'variant of Jesus', the divine adversary, and the return of chaos, the titans, Saturn, the ancient gods, Lovecraftian Great Old Ones, etc. Ihu is also similar to EA, or the Sumerian Enki who brought the flood. Enki was furthermore the son of Tiamat, the Celestial being bursting from the Earth in the Eternals.
